Which Air Conditioning Service Plan Should I Get?

October 20, 2017

There can be some inconsistent info about air conditioning service plans. Do you need one? Is the cost worth it? What should it include? Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling can help answer your questions and erase some confusion.

But I Have a Warranty

Perhaps one of the most confusing things about air conditioning repair plans is that homeowners often assume they don’t need one because their air conditioning is under warranty. However, the warranty and a maintenance service agreement are two distinctively separate things—and in lots of cases, you actually need to have ongoing air conditioning service done to keep your warranty in effect. Scheduling these appointments will ensure your air conditioner is running as it should and highlight potential problems before they become bigger, and expensive, problems. A warranty commonly only covers major components of an air conditioner, and not labor costs, which can accumulate pretty fast. It’s vital to go through all details of your warranty so you comprehend what’s covered and what isn’t.

Other Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Along with keeping your system operating safely, routine maintenance has a variety of benefits. Properly maintained systems have a better chance operate at peak efficiency, which may help save costs on your energy bills. They also filter your home’s air better, helping to keep your family healthier and your home cleaner.

Yet another benefit is that it helps make sure your air conditioner will operate correctly through its busiest season—aka when temperatures are high. The last thing you want on a warmer Des Moines day is to have to schedule an emergency repair.
